This Year, I Resolve To...

Religion:
  1. Read the Bible again, this time memorizing the whole thing.
  2. Also read all of Wayne Gruden's Systematic Theology.
  3. Spend at least 1/2 hour every day in prayer and reflection.
Relationships:
  1. Spend 3-5 evenings of quality time per week with my wife.
  2. Be the world's most romantic, considerate, and appreciative hunk of a husband.
  3. Spend every moment of my kids' waking hours playing with them, nurturing them and helping them learn and grow both as responsible members of society and as precious individuals.
  4. Earn the title of "best friend" from all of the men that I interact with on a somewhat regular basis.
Career and Financial:
  1. Complete my next task at work in less than 1/2 the scheduled time, become a manager of a large project, and save the company millions of dollars through my innovative engineering and management.
  2. Create a new invention that I will patent and make millions of dollars for myself with, then start my own company that will go public and later get bought out by Google for millions more.
  3. Pay off all of my debts, including my student loan and both houses (why worry about selling the old house now, when I can just decide what to do with it once it's paid off).
  4. Once all of my debt is paid off, work the stock market until my portfolio multiplies by at least 10-fold.
Hobbies:
  1. Read at least 3-5 novels.
  2. Upgrade my car so it runs sub-11 second quarter miles and reaches over 1 Gs in the corners.
  3. Once the car is upgraded sufficiently, become the world drifting champion.
  4. Complete all of my home project ideas, including completing the rec room with a pool and air hockey table, home theater set up. Then a lighted dance floor, smoke machine, disco ball, laser and strobe lights to turn it into a club for all of my friends to hang out and dance in (once their kids are asleep of course).
Fitness:
  1. Reduce my body fat to about 5%, like it was back when I was on the wrestling team in high school.
  2. Once I'm in good enough shape then train for, fight in, and win at least one UFC event, probably in either the 170 lb (if I slim down a bit) or 185 lb (if I add a few additional pounds of muscle) weight division.
Education:
  1. Read at least 3 books for work.
  2. Learn Italian (because it's my heritage), Spanish (because I live in California), and Russian (because I have never met a Russian that I didn't like, there is a high density of them here in Sacramento, and because the undisputed best Mixed Martial Arts fighter in the world - Fedor Emelianenko - is a Russian).
  3. Once all that is done, enroll in school and complete my MBA, just for kicks.

By the way...I am counting on that 3-5 nights of quality time and the world's most romantic, hunk of a husband resolution. I take these things very seriously.
